How much does a personal injury lawyer cost?Personal injury lawyers work on a contingency basis. This means that they only collect a fee if they are able to get money for you. Costs may not be contingent upon the outcome of a case.
What exactly do I receive money for in a personal injury lawsuit?You can collect money for lost income, pain and suffering, medical costs and more.
I am partially responsible for my injury. Do I still have a case?Generally, yes. Even if you are partially responsible for your injury, you still may be entitled to money, depending on the amount of blame that is placed on you. By signing up for a free consultation with an injury lawyer, you can determine if you may be entitled to money.
Is the information I provide confidential?Yes, any information given to The Lawyers Group will only be used in order to select the injury lawyer best suited to help you. We will never provide your information to anyone outside of our network of attorneys, and will not use your address, phone number or any other information you provide for any type of solicitation.
What information should I bring with me when I meet with a lawyer?Any information that you have about your case will be important to bring. Documents, such as accident reports, medical reports, other party's insurance information, or photographs of the incident will help your injury lawyer decide if you have a case. If you don't have any of this information available, your lawyer will be able to get it for you.
How long after my injury should I wait before contacting a lawyer?You should contact a lawyer as soon as possible after an injury. The law limits the time you have to file a claim and it may take time to obtain all of the information about your case. This information also may become more difficult to get as more time passes. The sooner you contact an injury lawyer, the better chance you have of receiving a money award.
Wrongful Death Questions
Can I bring a wrongful death action if the person never had a job?Wrongful death cases often involve people who did not have a job or much other income. Compensation for loss of companionship, assistance or other approach of family contribution may be requested in the wrongful death lawsuit. The loss of contributions, such as the role a stay-at-home mom, is considered a loss in a wrongful death action.
How big of a settlement am I entitled to?Claims for wrongful death can include medical and burial expenses, loss of income, mental anguish, loss of companionship, loss of future, income, loss of services, loss of family assets, care, pain and suffering, and legal fees.
